Antonio Lopez Reche
Since, 1995 when Antonio finished his Fine Arts degree at Barcelona’s University and his Erasmus exchange at Central St Martins in London where his research in the field of sculpture focused mainly on installation and conceptual art, Antonio’s work has evolved considerably into further fields.
While still producing non figurative pieces, his main focus over the past eighteen years has been to develop a body of work having mythology as the central theme of his figurative bronzes.
While mythology might be the central theme for this group of works, the essence of them is the actual act of modelling and creating forms that convey movement, strength and his interest in capturing the rawness of materials such as clay, wax or plaster into bronze as well as the expressive energy of tools marks and spontaneous modelling.
Antonio’s work is featured in many collections around Europe, the United States and Hong Kong, as well as in UK galleries. His work can be also viewed by appointment in his South East London studio where he works in collaboration with his clients on specific site related projects and other private commissions.
